Not sure it helps but I recently bought a pink braid on ebay.
The brand is Kastking, it is Chinese I believe. Still have to test it.

These cheap Chinese eBay braids are surprisingly good
I have had no issues with them
Being a 4 carrier braid they are however noisy,color options are great if you are into that type of thing :lol:

For ccass :

It will be my pleasure, but the predators fishing season is now closed for 4 months in France. So no feedback before May.

The only thing I can tell you about this Chinese braid is that the diameter is clearly bigger than the equivalent in resistance (65 lbs) from powerpro ou suffix. I have also read that the color pass very fast. Honestly I don t expect too much from this braid, just wanted to try because it is low cost.

I know quite a few people that have spooled up with pink braid for things cancer awareness. A friend of mine has done several tournaments with that kastking pink and she really likes it. I went with the moss green color, but I agree that I haven't had any problems with it. It performs well and is lower cost. I'm not sure if the company makes it specifically for things cancer awareness, but I think it's cool it's available.

I'll try it out. Only if it comes in bigger diameters though.

Also, do you have a problem with the line digging into itself on the spool of a baitcaster?

Yes Gliss comes in bright pink line, I'm getting it in 24 lb test, Dicks and Field and Stream carries it.

"Bionic braid" is pink and widely used in Australia by Barra fisherman. Comes in a range of spool and line sizes.

I like Gliss. I have it on my "finesse" BFS setup. I do have a spool of 40lb as well but I think Gliss will get tore up too quickly. It's a nice line but it doesn't like to touch anything besides a leader line or water. It isn't very abrasion resistant at all.
